MLK Holiday: A Good Day to Serve

Posted originally on the 2012 King Holiday. Where will you serve in 2013? Stay tuned for an upcoming blog of Outdoor Afro activities this year!


Tonight I am still feeling lifted from my experience this Martin Luther King Jr. memorial morning when I joined over three-hundred people from all walks of life to beautify and restore a section of Richmond California’s Greenway.

Several local groups organized the event or provided volunteers to do a wide variety of tasks in the event’s fifth year.

Check out more photos from the event:

Everywhere I looked were scenes of people of all races, ages, classes, and persuasions cheerfully coming together; helping and learning from one another while doing the environment a world of good — just as King would have wanted it.

Did you devote a part of this day to service? If so, what did you do?
